What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Posted on 1/23/2023 by Singing River Dentistry Madison
What Are Porcelain Veneers?Dental veneers are custom-made, wafer-thin shells made of colored tooth materials made to cover the teeth' front surface, whose main purpose is to improve the overall appearance. The shells are attached o the teeth front to change their shape, size, length, and color. Dental veneers come in various types, which suit patients depending on their needs. For instance, resin veneers do not resist stains better than porcelain. It all depends on what your orthodontist prefers for you after an oral exam has been carried out.

Determining If you Are A Porcelain Candidate

The first way to find out whether you are suitable for porcelain veneers is by consulting a cosmetic dentist. During the appointment, this is when the dentist will evaluate your present dental health, enamel condition, and health history. After your appointment, you will know well whether porcelain veneers are meant for you or if they can have another available treatment.

The Cost Of Porcelain Veneers

Although the cost of porcelain veneers varies, on an average range, they cost numerous hundred dollars per tooth. Some factors that can affect the cost of veneers installation are the type of veneers, the experience of the dentist, and geographic location. It is important that you do not look at the cost of veneers at that time but look at the long-term service of veneers instead.

Steps For Placing Porcelain Veneers

Preparation of teeth is done whereby a dentist takes small pieces of enamel from the teeth' front and sides. This is what brings out that natural look of the veneers once they are placed on your teeth. The dentist will then make a mold or an impression for the prepared teeth. After that, the dentist will decide which shade of veneer will suit a patient's smile. For the veneers to fit into the patient's teeth, they are customized in a few days as temporary teeth are placed. The final procedure is to have the customized porcelain veneers in place.
